Country Evening - A Work in Progress

This is a painting I had started a while ago (see posts on 21 October 2011 and 05 August 2013) and I wanted to get it closer to being finished.

I started where I had left off by adding more colour into the background hills and the various trees and giving them a little more definition.

While the background was drying I added some wood grain to the fence posts and tried to lift out more of the reflections from the water.

Next I did a little more work on the buildings on the left side, adding some of the barn boards, fixing the roof lines and adding a little more detail to the door and window.

Moving over to the left side buildings I added a window to each of them and darkened the door on the center building.

I lightly drew in where I wanted the reflections to go in the water and lifted more of the reflections to remove them from where they shouldn't have been placed.

I will post this painting at a later date once more work on it has been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
